Orlando Shooter Called 911 to Swear Allegiance to ISIS Leader
The 29-year-old Florida resident swore his allegiance to the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, during the call, according to NBC News.
Law enforcement officials are currently looking into his ties to the organization, in addition to searching his home.
Meanwhile, Mateen‘s ex-wife, who didn’t want to release her name, has revealed that he was abusive toward her during their relationship.
“He was not a stable person,” she told the Washington Post. “He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.”
She added, “He seemed like a normal human being. He was a very private person.”
Our thoughts remain with the victims and their families.
